Guests should arrive between 6.30pm and 7.00pm with mulled wine on arrival (doors close promptly at 7.15pm)

Guests are then ushered in to court to be welcomed by their host. An unexpected event happens as part of the Murder Mystery. Guests then have chance to tour the museum, looking for clues and interviewing suspects.

The Christmas meal is served from 8.30pm where guests can mull over their decisions, before their sleuth packs are turned in and they’re ushered to the court for the reveal. The evening will then conclude promptly at 10.30pm, once the mystery has been solved.
